We travel frequently, spending at least 3 weekends a month in hotels. This was one of the best we have ever stayed at. The hotel has been recently renovated. The rooms, and common areas are spotlessly maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding, large variety and freshly made. It is clear the staff takes great pride...

The hotel is spotless and the staff is super friendly.The school is only 5-7 minutes away, Target and Home Depot are right across the street. Everything a parent needs! I came back from a long day out this afternoon and the front desk clerk made a big... More

I am a frequent visitor to Tuscaloosa and the Holiday Inn Express is my "go to" hotel! I can not say enough positive things about this hotel. I was there for a meeting in March and the hotel is undergoing a major renovation. The newly decorated rooms are beautiful. They are super roomy and comfortable. Everything is clean and well...

We used this hotel as our home base during our visit to the University of Alabama. It was clean and convenient for where we needed it. We plan on returning again when we visit the college again in the summer.

Stayed there one night while in town on business. Staff was friendly, and there is a pool and fitness center. There also was a nice breakfast spread, though I had an off-site breakfast meeting so did not try anything. Location near the center of town so easy access to all. Would stay there again.

This is one of the very few hotels that have been updated in the Tuscaloosa area. The location is very convenient, breakfast good. I would love to stay here again, however it stays booked up! Can't go wrong here.

I'm a frequent traveler for work and often stay at Holiday Inn Expresses when possible. I was in Tuscaloosa for three nights (via Los Angeles) and found this hotel through TripAdvisor. My stay here was excellent. The hotel staff was very professional, friendly, and helpful. I had a fluctuating schedule and they were able to accommodate all my repeated changes.... More

We stayed here while visiting the law school. Great location and plenty of options for food around. The staff was excellent and friendly. Our room was spacious and clean, great beds. My only complaint is the workout room. It's clean and private, but the machines need a little TLC.

We stayed here while touring the university. The location was very convenient. The rooms and public areas were very clean. The breakfast was good, better than most. I would stay here again if we return.
